Romancing the Beekman

It's not too late to plan an impromptu itinerary for two down Sleepy Hollow's main lane.

 

Beekman is not romantic, you say? Not true! 

We went up and down Sleepy Hollow's main lane the other day to find a few places you could wile away the hours with your lover this evening. And then, if you haven't had enough there's a post-VDay party at week's end. 

Stop 1:  doesn't usually take reservations, but they are tonight. However, no problem cuddling up at the bar and sharing a quick glass of red wine and appetizer in this lovely amore-inducing Italian restaurant.

Stop 2: Is it perfume? No, it's the pink drink in a beautiful keepsake bottle at , and nothing says love like a label in French. Nuvo's L'esprit de Paris comes in a big bottle for $34.99 or $19.99. Now, squirrel this away in your bag for late-night festivities.

Stop 3: Note the romantically red holly berries in front of 's church as you walk down Beekman, and extra points if you find heart decorations on doors and storefronts.

Stop 4: High thee to the river-end of Beekman for the prix-fix dinner at . $65 per person ($130 per couple) will get you something special like surf-and-turf, crab cakes, rack of lamb and other offerings from the land and sea in an intimately rearranged dining room. Please apologize to Bob Ronan when you call for making such a late reservation: (914) 909-5380.

Stop 5: Last stop: to the river, the gazebo at the edge of Ichabod's Landing. It's cold, but you have love and some French perfume to drink. Now don't be lewd or loud because the neighbors will get angry and you might find the police busting in on your moment.

Stop 6: Haven't had enough? is having a post-Valentine's Party "for friends, families, everyone" on Feb. 17 from 9 p.m. to 4 p.m. with DJ, games and more.
